I have a Myoporum Carsonii in moderately dry acid soil, and one in very wet soil near a body of salt water. Both are doing well. The city of Alameda, CA uses this tree extensively along the streets even though the roots sometimes lift sidewalks.

Requires pruning on a regular basis, which can be difficult on a 20 foot high tree. The 20 foot diameter canopy on a mature tree provides a nice open shady area.

A very hardy fast growing tree which does well in difficult locations.
